Ever chase a cat or dog around the house trying to administer medications? Getting them to take a pill can be tricky. If your veterinarian prescribes medications for your pet, ask if it comes in liquid form. If not, here are a few tips on giving your pets pills.

Give your pet a smaller than usual amount of food. Crush the pill and mix it in with his food. You can also mix in the liquid meds.
Hide the pill in a small dab (smaller than the size of a dime) of cream cheese, peanut butter, tuna or in a dog or cat treat. Ask your veterinarian first if it is okay to give your cat or dog these foods.
If these don’t work,  cradle your pet against you. Then hold your pet’s lower jaw in one hand and upper jaw in the other. Make sure your pet’s head is pointed toward the ceiling. Then pop the pill into his mouth. Wait about a minute to make sure your pet actually swallows the pill. There are several online video sites that will demonstrate how to give your pet a pill.
Getting Pills

Purchasing medications online is often less expensive than buying directly through your veterinarian. One such source for good value and low prices for a wide assortment of pet medications is Vet Medic.  Vet Medic Pharmacy sells over 11,000 products including popular over-the-counter brands and prescriptions. Products are shipped quickly, and many come with free delivery.

Human Medications Should Never Be Given to Pets


Never give your pets medications for people. Vet-Medic Pharmacy sells over-the-counter and prescription meds just for pets.
Despite the fact that many prescription medications for people are the same as those prescribed by veterinarians for pets, you should never give your pet people medication. The dosage for pets is much lower. (I take Synthroid for an under active thyroid. One of my cats, who also had an under active thyroid, used to take the same medication at a very low dose.) Many animals can be harmed by taking people medications. So just as you would for kids, keep your medications away from your pets. If you have any questions, consult with your veterinarian.
